My husband and I have just returned from 2 nights at the Fox Inn. Our room was ready for us although we arrived early. The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. We ate in the bar in the evening. I had the lamb Wellington and my husband had the belly pork. Both meals were of a high standard. We... More

I called in at the Fox with my two daughters and granddaughter, when we walked in, we were inspected by 'the locals', who seemed friendly enough. It went downhill rapidly, when I asked the barman if they were still serving food, I was told 'no'. Eventually, when I asked my family if they would like to leave, I was told... More

The appropriate behaviour of my staff is obviously an issue, which i will look into. I myself would always rather a pub with personalities behind the bar who will engage in conversation with customers than those who serve, say nothing and go away. I would like to start a WORLDWIDE TRIP ADVISOR DEBATE 'SOUP' VS NOT ALLOWED TO PUT IN... More

It gives me no pleasure to write a negative review but in this case it's important to be honest. It's a beautiful property and from the outside looks like the quintessential Cotswold pub, until you walk in the door. The smell is what hit first which means it's in need of a good clean. The bar staff was indifferent and... More

I would like to apologise for failing to deliver food of an appropriate standard but this was a small period when i had to resort to an agency chef who was not up to our normal standard. The filo parcel portion should of been double that of what was served (obviously served our starter size rather than main course by... More

The Fox is in a beautiful setting next to the river with a great beer garden. The food however is overpriced for what it is. We ordered from the bar/pub lunch menu rather than the main dishes as we were having lunch and whilst the service was prompt and friendly the food itself did not match the price charged (average...

My husband and 2 children came here for dinner during our break in Burford. It was quite quiet except for a few locals and I understand from previous reviews that some tourists have been intimidated by this, which has urged me to write my own review. I loved it! We had great banter with the bar staff who were warm,... More

Myself and 3 friends stayed for one night after playing golf at Burford golf club. The food at the Fox was really good, perhaps a tad pricey. The mews rooms were of a very high standard. The Hungarian waiter was very helpful and happy. The Fox is a good base for visiting the Cotswolds.

My business partner and I are lucky enough to get a couple of days away from our wives occasionally, and like to take full advantage of the freedom. We travel from the North West to London a lot, so we like to visit different hotels and areas. The Fox fitted our requirements for both business and fun. Firstly, it's in... More

We got married in May and the Fox Inn did our catering at Great Barrington Village Hall. We also had our reception drinks at the pub and the whole family staying in their rooms on the night of the wedding. Mel and her team did a fantastic job and I literally couldn't fault them. They went out of their way... More

This is a quintessential English country pub whose appearance promises great things. I stopped here with a friend whilst out for a drive around the Cotswolds, hoping for a decent pub lunch. The cheapest main courses on the menu were around twelve or thirteen pounds, rising to over twenty. This suggested the standard of food would be well above average... More
